Contrarian Thanksgiving Play?

  • It's Thanksgiving week, so being a contrarian this week might be tough. It'd be like being a contrarian on Thanksgiving day and betting on egg salad sandwiches instead of a turkey.  Everyone on the planet knows that this is a bang-up gung-ho to-the-moon week for stocks.  The bulls are running and volume should be thinner than usual as the week progresses.   The market could surprise everyone and do something different, of course. 
  • Ohio State beats Michigan on saturday in a pretty exciting game.  Michigan remains #2 in the BCS bowl, but don't bet on a rematch just yet.  USC still has two games.  One against Notre Dame and the other against UCLA.  If USC wins those two, they might propel to #2 setting up a showdown with Ohio St. for all the marbles.
  • "Stupid Investment of the Week" honors from CBS Marketwatch.  The Blue Fund, a fund for Democrats that invests in companies that support Democrats.  Something like that.  Seems silly to me.  Hat tip to The Duck Stream.
  • Save the cheerleader.  Save the world.  Fall break finale for Heroes tonight!
  • DOW finished down, but Nasdaq finished up.  I'm still thinking turkey wins over egg salad sandwiches for thursday dinner, though.
  • I didn't even know there was a Playboy reality series on E! TV.  3rd season?  Where the heck have I been?  (I knew about the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders reality show, but haven't watched it.)  I hope Netflix has the series on DVD.  Something to watch during halftimes of the bowlgames-named-after-autoparts-companies.
